There was this one in the Dayton OH Packard Museum when I visited in 2012.

Yes, we recently visited the America's Packard Museum in downtown Dayton, OH to see this car. A real PackardSalad. Someone's version of a staff car, which is fine with us, but just cautioned us that because something is in a "useum" does not make it real or historically accurate. Just donated.

But, some interesting bits. Thompson machine gun holder on the dash with a Midland CB radio mic clipped on the dash. Hood ornament from a 47, so probably a 47 Clipper, which ours is.

Had some military radio guys look at the photo and seems it is some sort of civilian ham radio taxi cab or police car type radio, not a military radio. But I like the look, so am on the look out for one.

Placed with the interior waiting for the turkey to be served. Looks like I need some floor pans. Any leads on 47 Clipper front and rear floor pans? If not, I'll break out the metal brake and welder and get 'er done.

C2C Fabrication has a decent selection of replacement panels for 48-50. Haven't looked for 46-47, but can't envision a huge difference for your purposes. Their pricing seems pretty fair. I'm planning on making my own with a bead roller, as I want mine to be as close to original as possible. Good luck... lot of cutting coming your way..

Received two front floor panels from C/C and they appear to be what we need. Not a lot of pressed or stamped detail, but it's under the carpet anyway. A long ways from pulling body and cutting and welding, but wanted to get them in case prices go up or companies go out.
Trying to get a set of points so we can get this thing started. No spark at points, but coil checks out OK replaced condenser already.
Found some NAPA number sna dwill try tomorrow.
